Florianas house is utterly beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

Being in the hustle and bustle of Aci Costella was great. we had a real taste of Sicilian life... the local shops being full of beautiful local produce and the community was extrermly warm and welcoming.

We will definately return to discover more of this wonderful island.

Floriana and frederico (hope I remembered your name) were great hosts and honestly the house could have been a film set.. so very beautiful. we all feel quite sad that we had to come home so soon!

Amazing stay in Aci Castelo!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a wonderful stay in Aci Castelo with our two teenage daughters. Floriana and Francesco were gracious hosts and the apartment was very comfortable. It was amazing to stay in a place with so much history. The pictures truly don't do it justice. The master bedroom is huge and the family/dining area is large as well. Our girls shared a room off the master bedroom that had its own exit out onto the rear courtyard. The front courtyard is private and cosy. The kitchen is small but served all of our needs.

It should be noted that some other reviews stated that the beds weren't very comfortable. We found all of the beds to be very comfy. The apartment had everything we needed for our stay. We plan to return and will definitely recommend this place to our friends. Thank you so much, Floriana and Francesco. Grazie tante!

Nice, quiet spot in a busy town. Friendly owners. Clean and comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

We were happy with our stay in this establishment and would recommend it to friends/family. We were greeted by the owners when we arrived and received a bowl fresh fruit and cold almond milk (local drink). Spacious and rustic. Street parking easy to find but may have to pay (~3.50€/day). One hour from Etna, Syracuse, and Taormina. Kitchen lacked linen. Setup was good for two adults with multiple children. Not ideal for multiple couples as second bed was a pullout couch. Although the sofa bed was reasonably comfortable, it is situated in the dining room which is not ideal for privacy. Lots of dining nearby.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. About your criticism on the kitchen linen lack, we apologize for the lack of a single dish cloth that you could have asked for us. We would buy it immediately. Bye.

Bell'appartamento nel centro di Aci Castello

  • 4 of 5

Ad Agosto siamo stati ad Aci Castello per 4 notti, eravamo due famiglie con tre bambine dagli 8 agli 11 anni. Ci siamo trovati molto bene in questa casa, con ambienti spaziosi, puliti e freschi. E' molto comoda perché è in centro al paese, ma essendo in un cortile interno è anche silenziosa. Ottima pasticceria proprio fuori di casa. Floriana e suo marito sono stati molto gentili e disponibili. Consigliata!
